Marine Disaster on Lake Erie - Loss of Life.
The steamer Louisiana, with a large load of passengers, burst her steam chimney when off Astabula on the evening of the 6th inst., severely scalding all the firemen, four of whom are dead, and the fifth is not expected to live. Both of the engineers were also badly scalded, but hopes of their recovery are entertained. One passenger only was slightly injured. The steamer Michigan came promptly to the relief of the disabled boat and towed her into Conneaut, where she now lies.
